I've been dealing with a painful ear infection and ruptured eardrum, so I did some reading online. Found this lovely sentence:
"If the infection builds up, the eardrum may rupture to allow the puss to flow out."
This seems to have happened to me, except for the part about the cat.
"Pus": icky stuff
"Puss": fluffy animal
